A large seafood production company came to us with inventory problems and supply chain management issues in their shrimp business. We deployed our Track+ Make software to improve and integrate their operations process and enabled real time monitoring and control.

CLIENT BACKGROUND
A seafood production company, part of a 25 year old business conglomerate owning 250 hectares of hatcheries and over half a million hectares of farms. The client operated a state-of-the-art factory with a production capacity of 25 metric tons per day. They also maintained high industrial standard like BAP, BRC and HACCP.

BUSINESS CHALLENGES
The client faced complex business challenges with their supply chain, production and disease identification. The challenges in their shrimp business included monitoring of shrimp farms, procuring, packaging and storing of large volumes, biomass estimation, yield tracking and quality assurance and control.

SOLUTION
Tier 1 Digital’s implementation of Track+ Make enabled complete automation of business operations while integrating production and finance. Report generation for batch-wise purchase on the basis on weight and quality was done to help determine the right price and enable efficient tracking of logistics and storage. Simulated models for biomass estimation was also generated. A mobile platform was created to increase the ease of use.

KEY BENEFITS
The key benefits to the client were a well defined and managed value chain, improved decision making for pricing, real time situation analysis, inventory control and purchase management at the shrimp farms. The solution also eliminated data entry duplications.
